This whole Life 101 thing is a work in progress. I read a quote today that said "The Purpose of Life, is a Life of Purpose." Wow! That's profound....but what is a life of purpose. Every time I encounter someone that has found their purpose, I take a step back and look more closely at my own life. Most of the time I feel like I'm on the right path but it's hard to be sure.
I'm actually good at a lot of things. I learned to play music quite young and melodies come to me like manna. Writing feels natural and I love the people who read and respond to what I do. I can take pictures, I'm good with computers, I can teach and I'm a student of life.....but it's hard to say if one of these is my life purpose.
Jilda has found her niche. She's teaching Yoga and she is so good at teaching us regular folks how to do Yoga that she's got a following. I'm not saying they'd drink Koolaid and try to catch a comet, but her students are a-lovin' her style. People stop me in Foodworld to say "hey, does your wife do private lessons?" She loves her work and she's making a difference.
Not sure I can say the same thing. I do know this: I'm doing what I know and love. If I get to the end of my life and the Good Lord says "Rick, what the heck were you thinking?" All I can say is that I was searching.
